In many ways, architecture is a balancing act. The best buildings retain many of the qualities within collectivism (prioritizing the group over any one person) while also maintaining a degree of individualism. This is not a simple feat, which is why we often walk past so many structures without ever taking the time to notice them. But when it does happen—when a building causes us to pause and ponder—it allows us to see ordinary objects in a completely new way.
Also, another aspect is about the land before the ‘structure/building’s construction’.
After the land is selected, consulting an Astrologer is imperative, to find out an auspicious time to start the structure’s construction. This brings in health, wealth, prosperity and good fortune. Often it has been observed since time immemorial that, if construction got started without paying any heed to the ‘auspicious moment’, then work had to be stopped abruptly due to financial difficulties or any other hazard. Only Astrology can guard them not only from ‘financial loss’ but also from ‘loss of mental peace’, says Celebrated Real Estate Strategist and Astrology Consultant Hirav Shah.
Meanwhile, the U.S. is one such country filled with stunning architecture in all 50 states.
Further, Real Estate Astrologer and Astro-Strategist Hirav Shah whose answers have been game changers in all major sectors says-Marrying American cultural heritage with contemporary schools of design thinking, the resultant structures were striking and unlike anything seen in America before. Despite having to work within the social and economic parameters of the day, they didn’t compromise on expressing a new, modernist aesthetic. These experiments in architecture – particularly from the 1950’s a time when America was rapidly expanding – became landmarks of the US.
Here are ten of its most innovative experiments in Building Design selected by Hirav Shah for his prestigious ‘Hirav Shah List’ and ‘creativity, unique strategy and vision’ happen to be take-aways from each of the names mentioned below, says Shah.
1.United States Capitol (Washington, D.C.)
The stunning architecture throughout the 68 square miles (almost the exact same size as Brooklyn, New York) made it worthy of landing a spot on our selective list. Lovers of neoclassical, Georgian, gothic, and modern architecture will love walking the streets of Washington, D.C., as it is those four styles that are most prevalent. Yet, it’s our belief that the United States Capitol tops all the rest.
2. San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (California)
In 2016, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA) went through a renovation that added new energy to the space. The renovation was conducted by Snøhetta (a commission they won in a competition that featured Adjaye Associates, Diller Scofidio + Renfro, and Foster + Partners). The expansion added 235,000 square feet of space to the building’s interiors, while also contributing much to the city’s architectural integrity with the building’s exterior.
3.The Glass House (New Canaan, Connecticut)
Built by Philip Johnson in 1948–49, the Glass House has become emblematic of modern architecture. The home was built upon 47 acres of land, and was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1997.
4.Aqua Tower (Chicago, Illinois)
When Chicago’s Aqua Tower was completed in 2009, it became the world’s tallest skyscraper designed by a woman. Jeanne Gang of Studio Gang was able to stretch some balconies out as much as 12 feet. For those walking beneath the-859 foot-tall tower, the uneven balconies have an undulating quality, much like wind over water.
5.Palace of the Governors (Santa Fe, New Mexico)
Santa Fe’s Palace of the Governors was built in 1610 in the Colonial, Spanish-Pueblan style of architecture. The structure has the distinct honor of being the oldest continuously occupied public building in the U.S., a fact that helped with its designation in 1960 as a National Historic Landmark
6.Grand Central Station (New York)
New York’s Grand Central is not only the most beautifully designed building in the city but one of the most stunning in the country as well. Completed in 1913, this Beaux Arts train station was designed by Reed and Stem. Though both the interiors and exterior of the building are stunning in their own right, what truly makes this building so special is that it’s remained the same in design and purpose for over a hundred years. How many buildings, let alone train stations, can hold that claim in America?
7.Modern Art Museum (Fort Worth, Texas)
Designed by Japanese architect Tadao Ando, Fort Worth’s Modern Art Museum was completed in 2002. The Pritzker prize–winning architect’s design is modern and elegant, with a moat surrounding the structure that creates an alluring reflection at night. The museum’s permanent collection includes works by such luminaries as Pablo Picasso, Jackson Pollock, Gerhard Richter, Cindy Sherman, and Andy Warhol.
8.Iolani Palace (Honolulu, Hawaii)
Hawaii’s Iolani Palace was, at one point, the royal residence of the rulers of the Kingdom of Hawaii. Designed by Thomas J. Baker, Charles J. Wall, and Isaac Moore, the building is now a National Historic Landmark.
9.Little Rock Central High School (Arkansas)
While the design of this school (which was created by American-born architect John Parks Almand) is beautiful, the structure will surely be remembered for reasons outside of its appearance. In 1957 the school was the site of forced desegregation after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that segregation of public schools was unconstitutional.
10.The Delaware Legislative Hall (Dover)
Designed by E. William Martin and Norman M. Isham and completed in 1933, this Colonial Revival–style state capitol building houses the chambers and offices of the Delaware General Assembly.
Celebrated Astro-Consultant and Property Astrologer, Hirav Shah says Today such extraordinary classy structures can be built but it will get a lot difficult to proceed alone. It’s imperative to take a second expert opinion for certainty and clarity on everything. There are other aspects also to consider like technological developments, changes in government rules, economic indicators and covid impact.
Hence, it has become all the more important to consult a Business Astrologer and Strategist, who will help you with the right strategy and help you make decisions to move and progress forward, says Shah
